Corbin Seat Pan
« on: December 06, 2008, 01:25:00 am »
Does anyone know if Corbin ever used the stock Connie, C10, seat pan before they started making their own?  There is a guy on Ebay selling what he is says is the Dual Canyon.  The seat pan is white and has staples holding the cover on and NO Corbin logo.  I questioned him about it and he claims that Corbin used the stock seat pan first....All the Corbin seats I have ever seen even those from the mid-eighties were black fiberglass with rivets to hold the cover and the Corbin logo.

Nice thing about ebay.  If anything does not look quite right you just don't have to buy it.  ----------------------------------  I will answer any question.  It is up to you to figure out if I should have.    <p align="left">My Photos<br

This is from Corbin's Website.

 Can you recover my stock seat or build a Corbin seat on my stock basepan?  If you simply want your stock seat recovered, it is best to just have it done at a local upholstery shop where you can choose your colors and design your pattern. As far as stock basepans are concerned, we cannot build a Corbin seat onto the basepan that many motorcycles come with. Most basepans do not offer the strength to support the Comfort Cell foam and provide you with the comfort that Corbin saddles are famous for. If you are building a custom chopper and have had a steel or very strong fiberglass basepan made, then we can build a seat for you on your basepan, but we cannot build in the support for a rider's backrest. For additional information, drop us a line: Corbin01@corbin.com
   I'd say drop Corbin a line and ask them. If somebody's selling counterfeits, I bet they'd like to know about it.

Thanks for the input...I had seen the comment from Corbin's site and I did notify them of such.  Not sure what they would do.  That seat sold for just over $200.00...that's a lot of money for a stock C10 seat with a Corbin cover.  Buyer beware as always..

I purchased my corbin seat in 1987 and it has a fiberglass pan.  I hope this helps, Iceman.
